Smithsonian honors historic Boley, OK

A brand new Smithsonian exhibit, “Crossroads: Change in Rural America,” has made it to Boley, Oklahoma. Residents are proud to preserve and showcase Boley, as it is one of the 13 remaining historical all-Black towns in the nation.

This unique exhibit takes an in-depth look at the past, present and future of rural communities in Oklahoma and is open to the public now through June 25 in Okfuskee County. The display is open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sundays from 1-6 p.m.
